"..why not burma, where human rights issue is far worse.." Well, Newman, Burma is an independent country with a brutal dictatorship, that commits its crimes with no complicity from the West. Israel, on the other hand, is an invented state which would not last a day without the billions of dollars of American aid. Therefore the horrors that you commit are really our (American) horrors. Don't you think it's a little absurd to defend your violations of human rights by pointing out even worse violations committed by others? What are you trying to say -- if Burma does it we should be allowed to do it also? Why not go all the way, and say -- if Hitler did it to us why can't we do it to the Palestinians? The day will come when you finally realize the absurdity of taking land from one people to give it to a newly arrived people. As the United States finally recognized indigenous rights, as South Africa finally gave the Blacks the right to vote, so too you will have to give way.
